Take Your Coffee to the Next Level With Bulletproof Coffee

For generations, millions of people have shared a similar morning routine. Regardless of where you live or what time you wake up, chances are, a pivotal part of your morning (and by extension, the rest of your day) involves sipping a cup of coffee. Coffee has been a staple for many people for so long due to the numerous benefits it provides; first and foremost being energy. For many people, simply catching the aroma of fresh brewing coffee is enough to make them shake off their fuzzy heads. The boost provided from that initial cup has the powerful effect of bringing the drinker “online”, symbolizing the official start to their day.

With this being said, it may be absurd to believe that there is any way to improve coffee. However, with a few simple ingredients, coffee drinkers will be able to fully tap the potential of their coffee and experience a new level of physical and mental energy. Enter Bulletproof Coffee. The concept is actually quite straightforward; simply combining coffee with highly beneficial and unappreciated fats. Over the past few decades, “fat” has become a buzzword, carrying along with it a slew of negative assumptions and emotions. However, the human body is extremely dependent on the right kinds of fat, and many people do not take in adequate levels on a daily basis.

First and foremost, it is important to understand the difference between “good” and “bad” fats. Naturally occurring fats that are high in Omega-3 fatty acids are the “good” fats and provide the body and brain with sustained energy and focus as well as appetite suppression. Moreover, Omega-3s are essential for joint lubrication throughout the entire body. Foods like nuts, avocados, eggs, coconut oil, and meat from grass fed animals are high in Omega-3s. This is the foundation for making Bulletproof Coffee.

To begin your Bulletproof Coffee foray, simply brew a pot of coffee using whatever method you prefer. Then, add 2 tablespoons of grass-fed butter, and one tablespoon of coconut oil to a blender. There are also more potent products on the market to substitute coconut oil like Medium Chain Triglyceride Oil (MCT oil) or Brain Octane oil. These substitutes are essentially more refined versions of coconut oil, providing a much stronger and concentrated amount of the healthy fat.

With the butter and oil in the blender, add your Bulletproof coffee beans and blend the mixture for about 30 seconds. The result is a creamy, frothy cup of coffee that tastes fantastic and provides long-lasting mental focus, physical energy, and appetite suppression. Once you have tried Bulletproof Coffee, you will never want to drink a regular cup of coffee again. That’s why LATimes says their coffee shops are popping up all over California, and why Billboard says celebs like Madonna are all over this trend.

Model Janice Dickinson Sues Comedian Bill Cosby:Seeking Justice

Janice Dickinson has always been a woman with an opinion. The former 70s model has never been shy to walk away from controversy. In the past she has been combative, loud, harsh and so forth, and at the moment, she is ready to fight again.

The New York Times wrote the 60-year-old supermodel is seeking justice and hoping to drag comedian Bill Cosby into court to prove she is not a liar about the rape allegations she has filed against him. Dickinson has hired one of the best legal minds to represent her interests in attorney Lisa Bloom.

Bloom fired off the first missile in a prepared statement, as reported by E! News:

“Janice is not only alleging that Bill Cosby drugged and raped her in 1982, but he re-victimized her in 2014 by sending out his representatives to publically ridicule her. That’s called defamation,” Bloom said in the complaint.

“Bill Cosby refused to retract the comment that his representative made about Janice Dickinson being a liar. If they had done that, this lawsuit would not be necessary. But because they refused, her only option to clear her name in this lawsuit….”

Dickinson joins more than 3 dozen other women who have come forward, publicly claiming that the TV icon had drugged and raped them decades ago. Dickinson told her story last November with these allegations against the 77-year-old comedian.

Dickinson says she has suffered emotional distress.

Stacey Dash Proves She’s Actually Clueless

Skout reports many people probably do not know the name Stacey Dash. She is a 48-year-old African-American actress who has mostly played guest and supporting roles in B-rated movies and a variety of TV shows. She is best remembered as “Dionne” from the movie “Clueless” — a film about a group of super wealthy California girls who had no clue about the struggles of real life. She reprised this role in the TV series based on the film.

Earlier this month, Dash made several statements about the wage gap between men and women that ticked off a lot of people. She then reiterated these statements on Friday.

Dash believes that all women are receiving equal pay to men even though numerous studies have shown that many women across the country make far less than their male counterparts. In fact, some studies have shown that women with higher IQs and GPAs are making less than men in similar positions who have lower IQs and GPAs.

Dash also believes that female actresses should just be thankful they can get roles beside famous male actors. Additionally, she doesn’t believe that gender in any way affects the outcome of an actress getting another role in Hollywood and that women should stop whining and work harder to prove themselves worthy of their jobs.

Dash has failed to recognize that her seat at the table was mostly procured by her good looks.

David Lynch Returns to Twin Peaks (Finally)

Whatever problems David Lynch was having with the powers that be at Showtime have apparently been settled. Lynch is coming on board to direct the debut episode of the third season of Twin Peaks.

Twin Peaks was a cult series that aired on ABC to, honestly, low ratings. The weird series had all the oddball traits fans of director David Lynch came to expect recalls Jason Halpern. Lynch crafted Eraserhead and Blue Velvet among other strange films. The weirdness of Twin Peaks helped it amass a cult following and those fans have always been annoyed the series was abruptly canceled and its cliffhangers and plot lines were never resolved.

Showtime has made the surprising decision to resurrect the series much to the joy of fans. Then, the worst possibly news arrived. Lynch quit the show for reasons no one can 100% confirm. A third season of Twin Peaks was pretty much considered Twin Peaks in name only. The show was going to go on, but things just wouldn’t be the same.

Lynch and Showtime have settled whatever differences existed previously. The director is back in the proverbial saddle once again. Fans do not have to worry about the show deviating from his primary vision.

Lynch has laid relatively low in recent years. He is hardly considered an “A-lister” anymore. So, it was surprising he would bow out of the series. Regardless, he is back in the fold. Fans can rejoice once again.
